Far Cry hard copy pics

UPDATE - 3/16@9:58AM: Far Cry is finally available on iTunes US. Thanks to reader Gary M for the heads up.

Thanks to Rushgoober and Grizz over at Counterparts, we have some cool pics of an actual cd hard copy of the Far Cry single. Rushgoober has a radio show and was able to obtain a copy. Grizz was babysitting the copy while Rushgoober was at work and had this to say about it:

... I can't play it for you, but I can say that it sounds even better than the really good mp3 I have on a disc. Extreme clarity! Thank Ged this recording was not fucked up like VT was.

Anyway, I love this song. I've probably heard it 100 times already, and am showing no sign of getting tired of it. Even Rushgoober loves it, and it's rare for him to like anything that's been recorded over the last couple of decades. ...

I like (dare I say love?) it too. Also notice that there definitely is a shorter radio edit as can be seen in the third image. The radio edit runs in at 4:34 while the album version is 5:21. Another new bit of info; it was mastered by Brian "Big Bass" Gardner. This is really cool.
